After many months of hard work creating an environmental studies banner, with Debra Maes, Environmental Studies Coordinator, Churchill Road 6th grade artists Emma Higbee, Maggie Bujor and Linsey Wenk saw their project to fruition. With the assistance of Churchill Road teachers Jenny Whiteman and Jordan Craig-Kuhn, the 10 foot long and 5 foot wide banner now hangs at Churchill Road for all to see. With the motto, "In trash we find treasure," the mural embodies the key element of the school’s recycling efforts.
